Caliper is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of TransModeler 6.0, the most effective traffic simulation software available. TransModeler 6.0 takes significant strides in advancing Caliper’s mission to make traffic microsimulation more accurate, more affordable, and more scalable. Complex or time-consuming tasks are easier to accomplish in TransModeler 6.0 with an array of built-in tools, making it the most user-friendly simulation software package available.
TransModeler 6.0 achieves dramatic reductions in model running times, provides significant upgrades to its traffic flow models and driver behavior algorithms, and comes with an improved route choice and path management architecture. Mesoscopic and microscopic simulation and dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) are now more cost-effective than ever before.
TransModeler 6.0 better captures US vehicle fleets and driving behaviors out of the box without compromising the ability to adjust settings to model traffic conditions anywhere in the world.
Automatically identifying horizontal curves and calculating radii of curvature for road segments with multiple curves and accurately simulating deceleration and acceleration as drivers traverse them
Simulating complex driver interactions in merging and weaving areas better than ever before, overcoming many of the challenges of traditionally decoupled acceleration and lane changing algorithms
Adding new car following models for researchers and for connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) simulation, including the Intelligent Driver Model
Importing turning movement counts directly from spreadsheets
Calculating future-year trip matrices by pivoting base year trip matrices to forecast link volumes
Equipping you with new and improved road editing tools, including the ability to merge one-way streets into two-way streets with just two clicks
Simulation of multi-day periods or periods spanning midnight for evacuation, reliability, and other advanced planning analyses
More robust import of centroids and centroid connectors from planning models using TAZ boundaries and planning network topology
Support for activity-based model (ABM) trip lists from a wide variety of ABMs directly, preserving trip chain and activity schedules
